Karl-Anthony Towns, is closely related to head coach Tom Thibodeau, thus making him a strong acquisition candidate for the upcoming offseason.
Though his move to New York seems effortless, the Knicks need to exercise caution considering an athlete who was in just 29 games last season and went past 70 games only once in the last four years.
However, it was reported that there would definitely be mutual interest between the two parties.
A three-time All-Star and two-time All-NBA player, Anthony Towns certainly has the superstar stature to uplift a Knicks team that is looking for a worthy addition.
However, Knicks president Leon Rose is expected to agree to accept his next four-year, $224.2 million contract, which should pay him more than $50 million per season, including a $62 million player option for the 2027-28 season.
